This week, we read the book Stellaluna by Janell Canon. The book explored the differences and similarities among some baby animals. One baby animal got lost and became friends with others. The children described how they would feel if they got lost and what they would do.
Together we charted the different types of baby animals. We discussed specific names of baby animals such as kittens, puppies and cubs. Our class also voted on whether to change our Dramatic Play Center to a Vet’s office, or keep a Pediatrician.
We continued our research at the Science Center with information books and iPads, drawing and writing about chosen baby animals in our science journals.
In Art, we painted, collaged and drew pictures of baby animals to present to our friends during circle time.
Next week, we will be continuing our study of animal babies.
